WASHINGTON (CNN) – Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, offered a moment of light-heartedness at Wednesday’s Democratic presidential debate when he offered the audience two choices for president.
Kucinich told the audience at Dartmouth College that they could have a president who was in favor of health care reform, ending the war in Iraq, and against the Patriot Act, or “you can have a president who is tall.”
The comment caused the audience to erupt in laughter and fellow White House hopeful John Edwards, who was standing next to Kucinich, to come over and compare heights.
Various news reports have placed Kucinich at 5 feet, 7 inches tall.
